A Celebration of Music and Dance
Dear dancers, musicians and friends,
You are invited to join Craigellachie Band and the Day School Musicians and friends for a Celebration of Music and Dance. Here is the link:
This event will be available on YouTube from 8pm on Saturday 13 March for 72 hours only.
Ian Muir (Craigellachie), who has recently served as RSCDS Director of Music, and was tutor at our last Leeds Branch Musicians' Day, has put together a wonderful evening of dance music. It is brought to you by his Craigellachie Band, the musicians attending this Musicians' day with his own RSCDS Berks/Hants/Surrey Border Branch - and friends. The friends include participants from our own Musicians' Day in February 2020, who were invited to take part. The musicians were sent music and instructions, and all practised at home, then sent in videos of their individual performances which Ian has melded into a single band, using his studio technology. Brilliant!
Oh, and there's also a Quiz!
